A Eucalyptus tree got tired of living on the side of a hill on Broadway ( US 101) in Eureka across from the Bowling Alley.It wasn't happy with taking it's own life and had to take a billboard out with it.
The mess ended up blocking many lanes of Broadway and causing traffic troubles this afternoon.
This morning a bobcat excavator committed suicide by leaving the truck it was being pulled by and died near the HSU exit on south bound US 101 in Arcata. That also caused a major backup.
This afternoon not far from there, in the northbound lanes someone lost a load of hay. That didn't hold up much traffic as people just drove through it.
It was a good Monday to just stay home.
